Talk about “message” jewelry: Designer Link Wachler’s new line, “Linkatures,” combines jewelry and sculpture while taking celebrity fan-dom to a whole new level. Wachler, based in Birmingham, Mich., carves celebrity caricatures out of wax and casts them into precious metal rings depicting the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Jackie Mason, and Elvis Presley. The resulting “Linkatures” can be made into either rings or cufflinks.
Wachler’s collection—dubbed his “lost wax museum”—is on display at David Wachler & Sons in Birmingham. For more information, visit www.linkgwdesigns.com.
